Rights and Empowerment (teens and children)

Books we read can have a big impact on who we become. This month, we want to empower our children and teens and let them know it’s never too early to stand up and change the world for the better. Know your rights and get involved!

Thank U, Next!

Whether it’s ending things with your best friend or your significant other, breakups can tear you apart. But ending relationships can also help you find inner peace and strength you never knew you had. Each of the books on this list is about breaking up with a friend or significant other or the aftermath of a breakup. These books will help teen readers find their own “thank u, next” moment.
